Well, if a friend laughs at you for three months because he got you in a trade, I would call that a pretty high "transaction cost".!+)

That's another problem. Because you don't know the value of the player to the opposing owner, you try to go as low as possible, hoping to work out a deal later. But the guy sees it as a low-ball, and angrily denies the trade without shooting something back, even if it could help him. Happens often, I think, and would be helped in a communacitive league.

i find the biggest problem is managers sticking to the value the player had on draft day. i don't care if i only gave $11 for Bonds..he is playing at a much higher value and i'm not going to deal for your $13 guy that is playing like crap. :)
